Gabby Jahanshahi-Edlin is a creative consultant, social entrepreneur, female business leader, and speaker on social and cultural change – mainly to do with female health and period equity.

In 2016, she founded the first-of-its-kind charity, Bloody Good Period, and worked as CEO until 2022. Through her charity, she changed the way we talk about periods at home, in the workplace, and on a wider national level.

Her entrepreneurial skills and charitable nature has seen her named one of London’s Most Influential People by The Evening Standard, a Top 50 Trailblazer in Gender Equality by We Are The City, and one of the 100 trailblazers redefining the creative art industry by recruitment website The Dots.

She has appeared on television shows, including The Last Leg, Sky News and BBC News. She has been featured in several written publications, including The Metro, The Sunday Times, Third Sector Magazine, Vogue, Stylist, The Evening Standard, and Glamour.

Now a proficient keynote speaker, Gabby has spoken for beauty brands, global conglomerates, Universities and many others.

Gabby recently appeared as a guest on the Smashing the Ceiling podcast, where I had the pleasure of interviewing her about her career so far, including the founding and subsequent growth of Bloody Good Period. Gabby is articulate, intelligent and engaging; she was an honest, open and very popular guest, and I wish her every success with her future endeavours.
